Oh, baby, it's a party. This one's dedicated to all the folks who are too busy working on First Friday art walks to enjoy themselves. So they moved the party a little later . . . way later. It starts at 2 a.m. (technically it's Saturday morning). Want to live it up? Check out the facebook event page for details and click here for location details.
This event involves drinking and bar-hopping. So walk. Or take a cab. Or the light rail. Because you are going to get sauced on Saturday, September 11, when you head out tobooze it up for AIDS research
. That's right, every drink you pay for benefits the fight against AIDS. We really can't think of a better reason to drink. Clickhere
Banned & Censored Video Game Free Play @ Bookmans
Both stores are sticking it to our collective sense of decency by inviting video game geeks to grab a controller and start killing, raping, and pulling out spinal cords on various banned video games on Sunday, September 12. It's all a part of the store's ongoing events for "Fight Censorship Month" and we totally fucking dig that. Click here and here for details.
